Today would have been our five year anniversary. So often I have a solid grasp on how to mark such days, but today I’m at a loss. Today, feels sad but it also feels quiet-I suppose that is how grief moves-from a loud, in your face, center of the world cannot get around it gorilla- to, after some time has passed, a quiet walk with me in contemplation and remembrance companion.

Oh Laurajay thank you so very much for your words and wisdom! Your kindness and understanding truly helped to ease my day, when so much of it seems so hard today. Sending you hugs, Flan

oh Flan...I forgot how young you I can only think to pray your pain will modify  and you will be divinely directed to finding love that fills so many good years still ahead of you.  A person or a calling or whatever will allow you to once again embrace life fully with your husband's memory  a shining star to help you find such love again.  I am sad for you remembering how short your love story is and how unfair.  But my heart is hopeful that you will finish the worst of this grief process with a gentle acceptance and with a new way to love your life.       warm hugs my friend    lj
